Sold by Patricia McCormick

sold21   All over the world every person has problems; some are smaller than others, and some are too much to handle. There are problems that look so big that you think that you can’t deal with it any longer that kills you every second of every minute of every day. Each day the problem becomes more and more part of you life, until it controls your life. That is what happened to a young 13 year old girl named Lakshmi sold into prostitution. Lakshmi was a ordinary girl that lived with her family in a small village in Nepal. She lived very poorly but managed to survive each day as it came. Lakshmi’s life becomes a nightmare from which she can’t escape.  The book Sold is one of the best books I have ever read. This book takes you to the place and you imagine it like you were there. This book is a good book to spend a weekend reading. It is also easy to read and entertaining for all ages, especially high school students. The author Patricia McCormick made Lakshmi develop in the story from a mountain girl to a strong woman, able to take whatever life put in front of her. I would read this book over and over again and not get bored. Every time you open the book it is hard to let go of it – it grabs your attention. I really loved this book; it almost made me cry.
